Red Quinoa Beet Salad with Cucumber Blossoms and ‘Bacon’ – plus a giveaway!

Any time that you can sneak flowers into your food – go for it. Cucumber Blossoms from my pot on my rooftop.  I have a new best friend, Terry Hope Romero’s new book – “Salad Samurai”.  I’ve literally been carrying this book around the house with me for days.  Looking at all the fantastic ideas for salads, salad toppings, salad stuff!  Terry knows what a great salad needs.  Her new book is now available at Amazon  and she’s allowed me to sneak a peak at her fabulous book and share a bit of it with you.  Plus two lucky readers will be able to grab a copy of  “Salad Samurai” for free!!   Yikes, I love this book  ♥  The first thing that I noticed when looking through all the gorgeous pics and recipes in Terry’s book was that she and I share a love of salads that make a meal.  Salads that have a whole lot going on to satisfy your taste buds as well as your appetite.  I’ve been enjoying a salad for most of my dinner meals since the beginning of March.  I appreciate all the topping ideas and dressing recipes that I can get my hands…

So after 6 days of soaking, I really thought it would just be rancid.  Not so!

So after 6 days of soaking, I really thought it would just be rancid.  Not so! Yes, I love ‘bacon’ with my pepper………. It’s not great at all on it’s own, so don’t think there is an actually bacon substitute discovery here.  But when it’s all put together with it’s traditional porky partners: tomato and lettuce, good bread and some Vegan mayo,  it’s not bad at all 🙂     I dumped all of the coconut and marinade in a hot iron skillet and stirred it around for a good 10 minutes until it looked like bacon.  If…
